Panda Tournament - Championship Round: Jonas or Laimbeer. Voting Closed

Welcome to the Championship Round of...

The Piston Acquisition and New Development Awards Tournament

The tournament where users vote on future outcomes for the upcoming off-season.  In the last round we had lots of surprising action 

Final Four Highlights

  • Laimbeer Rolls - There are plenty of Laimbeer fanboys giving each other highfives right now, but calm down.  Laimbeer managed to win every vote, but that was because he was matched up against Mike Ilitch owning the team.  This victory is as much a head-tilting win for Gores as it is for the former Bad Boy.  Let's see how he fares next round
  • Jonas Wins the Tiebreak - Jonas Jerebko and Austin Daye received the same number of votes, even after leaving the voting open for 3 more days.  As a tiebreak I compared the total number of votes each option got throughout the tournament, and Jonas wins.   Hopefully the two will wage as competitive battle next fall in training camp (if we have a training camp next fall that is). Final Round: Bill Laimbeer hired as Coach takes on Jonas Jerebko regains full health and a deadly 3
  • Biyombo and Kenneth were victorious, because Biyombo is always victorious, everytime, forever.  People would rather see Ben Gordon get 21+ shots so he could re-kindle his scoring touch instead of 30 minutes of the Will Bynum show.
